What is Chelation Therapy?
Chelation (pronounced “key-lay-shun”) is a highly effective treatment for clearing heavy metals, excess calcium, and artery-damaging chemicals from the bloodstream. Although it was first used to treat heavy metal poisoning, chelation has since proven valuable for decreasing oxidative stress on tissues (lowering free radicals) and as an alternative treatment of heart disease and other circulatory disorders.
At EnerChanges, we have performed over 5000 safe and effective chelation therapy treatments. Chelation therapy is a powerful detoxification therapy that removes heavy metals, reducing free radicals by a million fold and heart disease by 90%. Since chelation works by lowering inflammation and free radicals, while assisting in tissue repair, it is a standard part of Enerchanges’ optimal aging program.
How does Chelation Therapy work?
Chelation involves the intravenous administration of a “chelating agent”, such as ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA), the most common and safe agent. Chelating agents such as EDTA enter the bloodstream and latch onto heavy or toxic metals (such as mercury, arsenic, aluminum, lead, iron, and cadmium) that build up in human tissue. By binding to these heavy metals and carrying them out of the body, this process reduces the body’s toxic metal burden and helps slow and reverse many chronic conditions such as atherosclerosis.
Because the aging process itself correlates with ongoing free radical damage, it is no surprise that a large variety of symptoms have been reported to improve following chelation therapy, even symptoms not directly caused by a circulatory disease. Patients generally feel younger and more energetic following therapy, even when taken for purely preventive reasons. In fact, chelation therapy is more desirable as a preventative measure than it is for the treatment of disease. Preventive medicine is always preferable to late-stage crisis intervention.
Chelation Therapy: A Surprising Discovery
EDTA was one of the first chelating agents used for circulatory conditions in the 1950s. World War II veterans afflicted with lead poisoning from painting battleships underwent chelation to “get the lead out”. Physicians noticed that chelation patients with atherosclerosis-related pain were experiencing almost unbelievable symptom relief.
Since then, over a million patients have undergone chelation therapy for a wide range of circulatory problems. Chelation has given heart disease patients an alternative to invasive heart surgery and has enabled patients with intermittent claudication to increase their walking distance. It has been used to alleviate angina, to reduce high blood pressure, and to spare diabetic patients from limb amputation.
Which conditions benefit from Chelation Therapy?
Heavy Metal Poisoning
Slow Healing Wounds
Peripheral Vascular Disease
While there is no scientific evidence that chelation cures disease, symptoms of arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, psoriasis, high blood pressure, and scleroderma have all been reported to improve with chelation therapy. In fact, there is no better-known treatment for scleroderma.
